The Lost Lake Festival and its beginning to appear that the most difficult part of the Festival may be decided what to eat and what (and how much) to drink. The number of restaurants represented at the Festival is simply staggering and represent the best that the Phoenix culinary scene has to offer. The inaugural Lost Lakes Festival will be a three-day event October 20-22, 2017 at Steele Indian School Park in central Phoenix.
Food and drink options include local eats at Phoenix Flavors, craft beers at Brewpark, BBQ at The Lava Pit, and mezcal and tequila cocktails and tastings at Nectar of the Gods. To truly capture the burgeoning culinary scene in Phoenix, Lost Lake Festival worked with James Beard award-winning chef and author, Chris Bianco of the iconic Pizzeria Bianco, who served as festival’s Culinary Ambassador, bringing together an amazing array of the best of local chefs and restaurants for Phoenix Flavors.
“I’m excited by Lost Lake Festival ‘s dedication to making this event a reflection of the Phoenix culture and community, including our local culinary scene. We invited some truly special people from our part of the world to keep you well nourished, hydrated and happy,” said Bianco. “My philosophy is that food is a shared experience, and that’s what we wanted to create with Phoenix Flavors, a space where festival-goers can come together to enjoy a taste of the Valley just as much as they enjoy the music.”
The full list of scheduled food and beer options include:
In addition to the restaurant options, Lost Lake Festival takes barbecue to a new level with The Lava Pit’s active volcano. The Lava Pit will serve up fresh barbeque grilled on the hot lava prepared by pitmasters from Starlite and Tom’s BBQ.

Lost Lake will celebrate the agave plant and its offerings with tasting flights of anejo, reposado, blanco and mezcal, or discover the rich history of tequila and mezcal through a selection of artisanal cocktails featuring the flavors of the Southwest.
